COVID-19 - We are open for business and here to help

The Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors at Wilford Smith have a comprehensive understanding of health and safety law across all sectors, and we have the skills, knowledge and determination to achieve the best result for you should you find yourself subject to a prohibition notice issued by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or local authority. Our lawyers are trained to the highest standard and can provide legal advice of the highest quality, ensuring that you receive clear, straight-forward, jargon-free guidance as part of our client-focused and highly personal service.
The HSE or local authority can serve a prohibition notice if, in the opinion of inspectors, practices under the control of the organisation involve the risk of serious personal injury. Once a prohibition notice has been issued, the organisation will be required to cease the activity until the organisation has taken appropriate steps to remedy the issues raised by inspectors. Breaching an enforcement notice is a criminal offence, with those who do so risking substantial fines and custodial sentences. Wilford Smith’s Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors have an enviable reputation for skills in litigation and advocacy and can support you to appeal against the issuing of a prohibition notice, or to offer the most robust defence possible should you be accused of breaching such a notice.

Our Regulatory and Compliance Teams are based in London, Sheffield and Manchester and assist clients throughout England and Wales. Contact us today on 0808 169 5882 to find out how we can help.
